It's a fish's game
Yesterday we took the boat out on the water again and spent most of the day out there. Summer is the hardest time to catch anything decent because of all the people out there doing the same thing so when I came home with these 2 babies (estimated to be around 4-5 lbs) was very happy. The top one is a Tarakihi and the bottom one is a Snapper.
We like to use a mixture of pilchards, calamari and benito as bait. I also caught this baby shark at one point also called dogfish but it went straight back in the water.
The other half kept catching baby snapper including this small Gurnard which was very spiny.
And this one that we thought at first was an Orange Roughy but it turned out to be a Sea Perch. We moved around at least 5 different spots but every one was the same. A hard day to get anything decent but lots of fun. We are thinking that once we fillet my fish tonight perhaps smoking one and turning the other into some sort of yellow thai fish cake. What do you think?
